Only open for breakfast and lunch, but can get breakfast till 2. Sandwiches were great and served with soup, salad or yam chips. Really original yet good. Outdoor patio seating. Good location with free street parking in Fairhaven.

Always bustling on Sunday morning. Their corn pancakes a favorite of ours. An old building on a key corner in Fairhaven. Truly an institution.

We came here on a recommendation of friends and the reviews looked promising. It is a small cafe, so you are in close quarters. You have to wait for a table (20 min). The waitresses are friendly and attentive. We met with relatives who also said they enjoyed it in the past. I like breakfast and to make a good... More

We had a nice meal this morning before leaving Fairhaven district. The Texas Taters I had was a excellent and unique mix of potatoes, sausage and other spices. All in all a very enyosble meal for everyone in the family.

We are frequent travelers to the Northern Washington area and we have been eating breakfast at a few cafes and restaurants between Bellingham and Seattle but this place is by far one of the best breakfast places in the zone. My favorite is Huevos Laredos with the chorizo sausage. It's a flavorful Mexican omelet with sour cream and guacamole on... More

My husband had tried this place for breakfast a few months ago and he said it was very good. I certainly disagree based on my experience. I didn't see much on their menu that appealed to me so I ordered a small glass of orange juice and 1 egg with sausage, potatoes and English muffin. The best part of my... More

Down-home cooking at its best. Very popular with locals and visitors so get there early. Had an outstanding mushroom omelet with drop-dead delicious hash browns. Loved it!

Friendly waitress, amazing OJ and tasty food! Great menu options especially for breakfast and it's such a cute old fashioned cozy restaurant. Would definitely come back to this restaurant in Fairhaven next time I'm in Bellingham for the friendly service, cheap prices and decent food.
